Broadway on Demand (BOD) In 2020, Broadway Licensing Global launched the Emmy® Award-nominated streaming platform Broadway On Demand, offering exclusive theatrical content, interactive events, and original programming projected to reach well over 200 million households by 2023. Additionally, Stageworks Productions, the original live stage content creation arm dedicated to the development of innovative, theatrical intellectual properties, has developed several world premiere musicals that have been produced in over 90 countries. In all, the combined force of the Broadway Licensing Global family of imprints continues to grow, with a singular goal to make everyone in the world a theatre person.

The Ali Forney Center (AFC) is the nation’s largest and most comprehensive organization dedicated to protecting LGBTQ youth from the harms of homelessness. Each year AFC sees over 2,000 young people who are kicked out of their homes due to homophobia and transphobia. 90% of the young people we see state religious beliefs as the leading cause of their homelessness. ​ A Staggering 95% of our clients are individuals of color largely comprised of Black and Latino communities. Nearly half of these young people come to NYC from across the country, mainly the south, fleeing homophobic homes, and communities. ​ Due to the current political climate, we have experienced a 20% increase in the number of youth fleeing their homes from these states. 

Our programs are designed to help young people overcome the traumas of homelessness and family rejection through medical and mental health services, and substance abuse treatment. Simultaneously, homeless youth are placed in one of our 19-site-scattered housing program. Including the Bea Arthur Residence, which opened its doors in 2018 in memory of one of our first celebrity supporters. 

Once stabilized, housed, and engaged in therapeutic care we engage young people in specially developed career and educational services designed to engage these youth in completing high school, and moving on to higher education, and credentialing programs. These services also include career placement and skills development through onsite programs and job readiness. 

As the largest and longest-running agency doing this work, we support smaller organizations and groups of activists that aim to support similar populations. Through capacity building and conferences, we expand our reach across the United States and throughout the world.
